The Flower Girl Dresses

*Warning : Picture Overload!!*

I can't help it...after making 3 flower girl gowns with my 2 bare hands using layers upon layers of charmeuse satin, tulle and sheer organza, you would understand my need to post as many photos as possible here lol

I must say, despite all that, this is one of the most gratifying projects ever! It is all worth it!

The wedding was on Friday. A simple reception at my in laws home in Sabak near Pengkalan Chepa in Kelantan. A great first experience for the girls as flower girls, penyeri majlis. My niece Asma Widad is still cruising so the bigger girls get to hold their beloved Aunt's hands and hand her over to the husband. It was beautiful, with relatives from all over, a great family event.

Being photographed by a professional photog while amateur momma sneaked in a snap lol


I used 3 different patterns from 3 different designers for these dresses. I customised each pattern to make them identical, but each pattern uses different techniques which help me learn about formal wear sewing. I used Rachel Dress Pattern by Sara Norris for Hanan's; Nonie's Girl by Ellie Inspired for Aisha's and Precious Dress by Carla C for Widad's. They are all available here on YCMT.

Enjoy the moments captured in the pics, I wrote some notes under each of them. Till later, have a wonderful week ahead my friends! :)

The 3 princesses in my life...


Pretty Princesses, Happy and Smiling


Aisha Alia - Softly Sweet Pretty Angel


Hanan Alia - Living Her Princess Dreams

On Duty - It was scorching hot and cue squinty eyes! lol


On Duty - Sharing a basket is not a good idea mom! lol


The beautiful bride; Widad and her daddy; Me and my girls, one happy momma.

Moment shot - Lil Hanan eagerly waiting to do her duty. I love how composed she looks, maintaining her princess poise lol. This pic is the new header as I give this blog a little makeover, hope you like it! :)

  40. Thank you Rachel! Sometimes when I decide on a dress to sew, I feel that way too, I'd loved to wear the dress myself lol! But my time has passed and obviously I didn't get to wear enough pretty dress when I was younger so the girls get to realised momma's dreams haha
